A seven-year-old Beccles pupil has won a competition to design a Christmas card for Waveney MP Peter Aldous.

Mr Aldous chose the card from a design contest held at Beccles Primary Academy.

The winning design was created by Ruben Riseborough, with eight-year-old Alexia Crisp and seven-year-old Sophie Edwards as runners up.

Mr Aldous visited the school to present the winners with House of Commons pens, along with a book token for Ruben.

The winning card is being printed by Anglia Print Ltd in Ellough. Three hundred cards have been ordered, and one will be sent to Prime Minister Theresa May.

Mr Aldous said: “I was extremely impressed with the many designs that came forward and it was difficult to make a final choice. Thank you to the staff and the pupils for taking part, and to Ruben for his excellent design.”
